We all know how a high beam light from oncoming traffic can cause serious problems to the driver or rider. To prevent this Haryana government has taken a major step.
Yes, Haryana government has made it mandatory to fit auto dipper in all four-wheeled transport vehicles according to the Rule 106 of the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989.
The Haryana state road transport official stated that the vehicles which are not equipped with the auto dippers cannot be registered by the registering authorities or the authorised motor vehicle dealer.
The official also stated that the four wheelers which are already registered will be fitted with the auto dipper which is compatible with the vehicle's headlamp.
The auto dippers which will be fitted on the vehicles will have to be approved by Transport Department on the basis of technology under license from National Research Development Corporation.
The manufacturer of auto dipper should submit the application to the Transport Department declaring that the auto dipper is compatible with headlamps as per AIS:034 and no tampering has to be done with original wiring.
The authorised distributor of the auto dippers will have to attach documents regarding sales, dealer network and service network in the state. One sample of auto dipper with application should be submitted for inspection and verification.
